Summary

Agents Of Mayhem is a fun ass game. I mean its completely bonkers and does stupid things just because videogames. It has so much going on and is so fun to play you can easily get lost in all the mayhem. I found though that after extensive play all missions started to feel the same, I couldn’t be arsed with the activities as it never felt worth it. That said its still a fun sandbox to shoot people and have fun. I just wish it had some sort of co-op so you could share the madness but as it is it is a lot of fun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
